SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police are investigating after hikers found a decomposing body near a popular Salt Lake City trail.

Unified Police Department officials say they were called Wednesday night by hikers who had found the remains on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, near This is the Place Heritage Park.

Officials say the body was too decomposed to be positively identified, though they found an ID on the victim. They say the body appears to be male.

A medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to try to identify the victim and determine the cause of death.
